Go-getter Georgia Paxton has ten days to acquire a quaint hotel in the Scottish Highlands for her travel accommodation company before she’s off on her next grand adventure. Too bad the sexy, broody Scot who owns the place is dead against the idea…and that she’s in very real danger of losing their little bet to see who can convince whom first.
There’s no way Callum MacGregor is going to let the gorgeous American turn his tiny hometown over to bored tourists looking to satisfy their Outlander fantasies. He only has ten days to convince her to slow down and see the magic of the town and its people. If he succeeds, he won’t have to run her out of the county. But if he fails, Georgia might run off with his heart.
Ten Days with the Highlander is the first book in the contemporary romance Love Abroad series by Hayson Manning. This book was a quick read that completely hit the spot if you are looking for a romantic romp that will make you smile. I loved the banter between Georgia and Callum, and I really enjoyed the story. This one is short enough to be read in one quick sitting and just long enough to feel like more than a novella.
In Ten Days with the Highlander we meet Georgia, who is in Scotland on a business trip to try and buy a Scottish Hotel and Callum who is the grumpy owner of said hotel who is determined not to sell it to a “tourist company”. I loved perky Georgia and snarky jaded Callum, and I really enjoyed watching the two of them erode each other’s defenses. Even though this book was on the shorter end, their romance didn’t feel rushed or “insta lovey”. It was a great progression.
Overall, this book is perfect if you are looking for a lighthearted read. There wasn’t a ton of depth or serious themes covered. It was pure frivolous fun in the best way. I really enjoyed this book and I am super interested in continuing on with the Love Abroad series and with Hayson Manning books in general. This one put a smile on my face and I can’t wait to discover more of her characters and stories.
